Very informative and a great capture of the Octopus in action as it blends in with the environment or becomes defensive. One of the coolest videos I had see is where the Octopus takes the camera from a diver while it is still recording.

As a science teacher I find the camouflage clips so interesting. In the lab they have had octopi replicate a checker board white and black image of squares onto their skin. It was absolutely amazing to watch and if I find the clip I will post it here. Thanks for sharing. Just AWESOME
